It is factory lowered, and am wondering if this is just a result of the already low center of gravity and the lowering kit or what? Or am I just losing my marbles?
How many miles on the rear shock and the steering head bearings? If it only happens in high speed cornering then it may need a rear shock rebuild.
When you are riding in a straight line at slow speed does it gyroscope like the front wheel is on cracks in the road?, this is steering head bearings.
